Everytime I come back home to Austin I HAVE to hike up Mt. Bonnell and check out the breath taking view. This time, I brought my husband for his 1st time up. We also hiked the trails near by. Which we enjoyed, but were pretty strenuous. Even for healthy 30 year olds!

Take your time and go a few hours before sunset, fantastic view. If you don't want to climb the stairs go north about 100 yards easy waking trail.

When you have some free time this is a very easy activity. You drive up with easy parking. Its a nice short climd up to a great view. It can be a very quick stop or you can hang out for awhile.

The view of Austin from the top of Mount Bonnell was worth each of the 105 steps. Of course this was early October. The view would have been worth it in July, but I don't think I would have survived the climb! There was a path with a gradual grade that can been taken for those with children and/or strollers or with difficulty in navigating steps.

Many western cities have parks that help to define their city. We had hoped Mt. Bonnell would be similar because it is so prominently mentioned in many travel sites. Alas, it was like many urban parks with litter, graphiti and poorly maintained facilities. It has a great view and is well worth the visit but the people of Austin should show more pride in this park.
